  • “Although the image of a bald man as an individual is distinctive, yet as they appear as a collective, the individual personality will vanish. This is for me a strong and compelling reason. For a man like me being brought up against this cultural background, the feeling of one as being neglected and ignored as an individual within the society is an intense one.”
    — Fang Lijun
